Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
A ruler should be slow to punish and swift to reward.
Ήκιστα πόλεμος επί ρητοίς χωρεί
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
A leader is a dealer in hope.
You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
Γνώμαι σοφών αρετήν πλουτίζουσιν
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
